Don Knotts stars in The Ghost and Mr. Chicken as a timid typesetter who hasn't a ghost of a chance of becoming a reporter – until he decides to solve a murder mystery and ends up spending a fright-filled night in a haunted house! Figuring the answers to the mystery lie in the old Simmons mansion, Luther Heggs (Knotts) visits the estate at the witching hour of midnight. Certain he's seen a ghost, Luther writes a story which makes front page news - and brings on a libel suit from the mansion's owner. When the trial judge orders an investigation - and no apparition appears - Luther is branded a fraud. That is, until he and his devoted girlfriend team up to uncover the mystery of the hauntings - and the true murderer - in this timeless comedy classic.

Is it campy and corny? Yes, gloriously so! With all the harmful filth generated today by known criminal offenders, a little bit of 60s Camp nostalgia offers a brief respite from the doomed and fracturing society today’s hypereality has beset us with. Thanks Don!!!
25-minute THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW episode where Gomer
and Deputy Fife investigate a haunted house... that was really a
front for a bootlegger.
None-the-less, I've had this on VHS-video-cassette-tape; DVD; and
look forward to the upgraded Blu-Ray.
~~~~Gotta love that Don Knotts!~~~~
Luther Heggs (Knotts) strives to prove himself to be a true newsman and attract the attention of beautiful Alma Parker. Luther's boss (Dick Sargent) asks him to spend the evening in the town's haunted house, where a murder-suicide took place 25 years prior. After being provoked by a colleague, Luther agrees and set forth to the house. Things go bump in the night and Luther comes out with a great story. Only now, the owner, nephew of the original owners, is suing Luther and the newspaper unless it can be proven that the house is indeed haunted.
